Bho Annwerctl Ills "Ad. "
On or about Juno 15 a small advertise
ment appeared in a DCS Moincs paper , be
lieved to bo the Keglslor , to the following
effect , if not m the exact words :
WANTED A young man of means and
eootl appearance desires the acquaintance of
a bright young lady as correspondent Mutual
pleasure the object , with no objection to
matrimony If the riidit person Is fouud. Address -
dross 1 * . T. Lcander Sioux City , la.
The events following upon this small
publication form ono of the 'most start
ling revelations of combined wickedness
and weakness , with Omaha for the stage
of its denouement , that the press has
recently been called upon to record.
A copy of the newspaper came to the
hands of Miss Lizzio llowton , the daugh
ter of a farmer living in Madison county ,
near Wlntorsot , la. , and the advertise
ment presented itself to her fancy as
offering an available opportunity
for a little romantic pastime.
Without doubtintr the honest motives of
the advertise1 : , and further considering
herself secure in her remoteness from the
correspondentshe addressed a letter to the
self-signed Lonndcr , brielly setting forth
the fuel that she was young and bright
nnd willing to maintain a pleasing corre
spondence. A regular interchange of
communications followed with increasing
familiarity of expression and fast-grow
ing disregard for ordinary convention
alities , until the young lady consented
to an exchange ot photographs. Al
though nineteen years of ago and
uiply old enough to know the peril of
er conduct , Miss llowton , pleased wither
or unseen communicant's portrait , per-
nitted the notes , which now redouble in
renucncy , to speak in seriouS sentiment
iiiu to discuss ways and means to a per-
onal meeting. The opportunity was of-
orcd about the middle of last month
ivhen , on her way to visit friends in At-
antic , Miss tlowton passed through DCS
Hoinca. Uy pro-appointment Leandcr
not her in the latter city , Miss iiowton
lolaying tlicro half a day to facilitate
ho meeting. Lcander seems to have
jeen of mimciont attractiveness to over-
brow the young lady's scant remnant of
liscretion , tor during the brief hours
, hey wore together an elopement was do-
ermlned upon. According to mutual
inderstamling , Miss iiowton wont on to
Atlantic while Lcander ran back to
ioux City to wind up his affairs in that
> lace ho pretended to bo a photo
grapher as their purpose was to
go further west together. Miss
lowton says that she told Lcander
ho would bo glnd to receive him openly
.s her suitor , with the cognizance of her
larents and friends , but he impressed
icr with the long delay to the consum
ption of their nopos and desires which
uch a measure would entail , and she
lonscutod to the furtive c'spousal. She
ind been in Atlantic a week , which
> rings the time down toward the end of
.no month , when ho wrote her that ho
was prepared and on his way to Omaha ,
wtioro she should hasten to meet him.
Although unprepared for this feature
of the affair , her attachment for and con-
Idoncu in Lcander , which amounted to
ockless infatuation prompted her to
make all has to to comply with his in
structions but it was three days before an
jpportunity for unobserved iligbt pre
She reached hero by the Rock Island
on Thursday morning , August 25 , and
was mot at Council Uluffs by Loandor.
"lo scorned delighted at her coining and
routed her with every mark of courtesy
and apparently deep affection as ho saw
to her transfer across the river , and con
ducted her to ono of the hotels in the city.
[ It is hero well enough to state that
wing to the unpleasant character of the
'acts ' and the subsequent generous con
duct of the proprietors of the house , who
wore in no way responsible , the name of
ho hotel has been suppressed. ]
lie Micro saw to her safe installment in
ono of the best appointed chambers of
thu hotel , telling her that ho would pro
cure the license of marriage and a minis
ter to solemnize the union. In a clieor-
ul humor Miss Iiowton remained in the
room and alter partaking of the dinner
.tint was brought lo her , prepared her
oilet for the important event which was
o mark the day.
It is certain that Leandor was in no
wise determined upon the plans ho set
forth to Mis.s Iiowton and that ho sought
relief from perplexities or nerve for a
criminal purpose in drink. Ho hovered
about the bar of the hotel the greater
part of thn afternoon and is remembered
or nis affected gaiety , good fellowship
vnd heavy potations.
About 5 o'clock lie evidently deter-
ninod upon a course of procccdurc or
: iad worked up the drunken courage to
over-ride all plans , for he ascended
abruptly to Miss liowton's room. What
followed is transcribed from her version
of the occurcnco.
She had been some time in waiting
ana at his knock wont eagerly to the
door. As she throw the lock ho roughly
entered , closed and locked the door
behind him , putting the ku.y in his pocket.
Already startled at this unexpected and
summary behavior , the girl was terrified
to witness in his Hushed face , unsteady
gait and gleaming eyes that ho was
drunk. As she addressed him in fright
ened inquiry as to thn mcaninc of his
conduct , ho Ipcriugly advanced upon her
with endearing namn.i and attempted ,
caresses. Shu eluded his grasp
and besought him to remembur
his honor and bur ilufcnsoless depend
ence upon him. Not the luast dissuaded
from his original purpose , he continued
his advance until she in positive terror
ran to the window to cry for help , lie
fore she could succeed In this purpose ,
ho with an agility and precision scarcely
to bo expected of a drunken man ,
seized her and drawing Jhcr back passed
his hand over her mouth. She struggled
frantically , and it was then that Leander
seemed maddened to a full expression of
his tioiulish purpose. lie told her of it ,
released her lips for reply and as she en
deavored to sie/ti thu opoortunit.v of thn
moment to scream , ho throttled her and
throw her to the lloor. The
struggle that followed was terrible
riblo and beyond the measure of word' ' ,
to portray. As she could not cry out.sho
soi/.cd with her teeth the hand that
gagged her , and bit the lingers till the
blood poured over her face ; with both
hands she tore at his o.vc.s and hair , while
ho with his disengaged hand alternately
beat her and ripped the clothing from her ,
It was in the midst of this fright
ful battle that the hotel people broke in
the door and interfered. The uufortun'
ate girl was by that time
almost unconscious , while be
though lacerated and much disfigured ,
had to a considerable degree regained his
senses. The hotel people , astounded and
uncertain how to act , wcro further dis
concerted by his hurried statement thit
she was.his wife and that the affair was
a family row. In this moment of uncer
tainty , Leandor left the hotel.
Although word of " the affair
' was sent to the police station ,
withm a very few minutes thereafter ana
several officers wore speedily on the
sccno , no trace of the fugitive scoundrel
could bo found. Nor has" anything since
been learned of him except that inquiries
at Sioux City disclose that no such person
as P. T. Lcandor Is known there. His
picture , obtained from Miss liowton ,
will bo copied nnd distributed over the
country in the hope of thus tracing him.
It was some hours before Miss llowton ,
under the most gentle earn of the people
of the hotel , could toll her story. Chief
bcavoy took the case In hand and after
laying every plan to catch the alleged
Lcander if possible , communicated with
Miss liowton's family. Her father hap
pening to bo ill at the time , her uuclo ,
Mr , John K. Urmston , also a farmer
near Wintorsot , came hero. The ox-
citomcnt attending the young lady's
terrible advcnturn and narrow escape
prostrated her , and it was not till ycster-
day that she was able to take the "Q"
train for homo.
In a conversation with a reporter for
the HKK , Miss Iiowton said that although
much ashamed of her nnrt in this misad
venture , she was willing to have it
printed as a warning to all foolish girls
who arc romantically inclined to exceed
the bounds of propriety in acquiring ac
quaintanceships. She extends her heart

ODDS AND ENDS.
Stray leaves Gathered From Report-
era * Note Dnolca.
As measured by the wonderful progress -
gross of its real estate and industrial ad
vancement , Omaha has kept full pace in
its intellectual strides. In seven years it
has accomplished wonders in this respect.
Examining the books of the board of Ed
ucation , Ilind that seven years ago there
were but sixty public teachers employed
and only seven public school buildings.
To-day the public schools number thirty-
five and the teachers 170. The other cdu-
national institutes in Omahu springing up
within that period , to furnish the demand
for the supply are ( Jrulghton college , the
medical college , two business colleges ,
Brownell hall , four convents , St. Philo-
menu's parochial school and several day
and night private schools. In addition ,
the city library to-day contains over 20- ,
000 volumes of reading , in all branches of
literature , most of which have been pur
chased during the past three years. Few
cities can show a bettor record.
Among the curios in Chief So avoy'a
cabinet , conlisticatod from theivcs and
contidoueo men , is a $1,000 boml. It is a
fine piece of engraving with the word

with two pictures , ono representing Hope
In the person of a woman leaning on an
anchor , the other Trade and Soioncc ,
with trains carrying grain and the tele
graph overhead. It bears date March 1 ,
1870 , and represents stock in a Colorado
silver mine which never existed. The
interest coupons are all torn oil but four ,
showing the company's prompt pay
ment of interest to date. The spurious
bond is the outlit of the conlidonco man ,
who ingratiates himself into the
armor's favor and then asks for
temporary loan , of a hundred
dollars , to meet some pressing
leinaml , offering the bond'as security ,
until ho can return home and rcdconi it.
The rustic bites at the snap often through
cupidity , never intending to return the
value of a thousand dollars , aa repre
sented in the bond , to the stranger's
address as furnished. Chuckling over his
good luck , the innocent ( ? ) tarmor spends
a few days in self-congratulation and
wonder over the trusting nature of men
as developed in the stranger , and then
"mils what lovely woman , "who trusts to
oily and finds too late that men betray , "
reali/.es that he is a damn fool , lluroly
is the confidence man captured , and if
taken , the farmer refuses to appear
against him , proforin" to suffer his loss
rather than expose his venality or ig
norance. These bonds are manufactured
by the thousand and sold as any other
traffic. They Hood the country 'and
catch the unwary every day , for
sucker is born every hour. "
Some Idea may bo gathered of the vast

School Manual Training.
A. M. liumann , the director of the
manual training department of the
high school , returned yesterday after a
ton weeks' absence , which tlmo ho has
dovotcd to the study of the systems used
in the manual training schools of Chicago
cage , Toledo , and other leading institu

manual training school at St. Louis , and
the public are well aware what unprece
dented succuia has crowned the doubtful
experiment of two years ago , when it
was decided to start a manual training
department in tho. Omaha high school.
Mr. James , the superintendent , speaks In
the highest terms of the department , and

Messrs. Ctimlngs.'Ullckonsderfcr ' and
Boguo , of the Un'6nPacltle } ? , went on n
special ycotcrday to Blue Springs , in this
state , to consider the advisability of
making a chnngdrln..ho location of the
road's headquarters in that plaeo. The
depot of the road Is now on the sldo of
the river away from the town , nnd this
has long been a source of annoyance to
the citizens who desire to reach the depot
without crossing the stream. They have ,
it is thought , offered inducements to the
Union Pacific to abandon a part of the
line near the city and approach the latter
fiom a bend in the river above the town.
Whether or not the cliango shall bo made ,
depends upon the report of the ollicials

A Now HaeiiKorlmiul Orcnnlzotl In tlio
The members of the Missouri Valley
saongerbund have been displeased with
tUemannor in which thoafl'airs have been
managed this year , by means of which
they have been deprived of ono of their
bi-onmal saougerfests. Two years ago
the last fest was held In Lincoln witli
great success , and great rivalry was en
gendered between the cities represented
ns to whcro the next fnst would bo hold.
Kansas City was linally accorded the
privilege of holdine the succeeding gath
ering , but the time for the holding has
passed and no Baongorfcst has bcon hold.
Several months ago the Kansas City sintf-
ors had secured the uieoeting , they no
tified the local alnping societies
as also those of the other
cities composing the saongerbund ,
that Kansas City would not bo able to
uako arrangements for the fest , and sug
gested that It ba deferred till next year.
1'lils Incensed the other societies , some
of whom. In small cities with not half
the wealth of Kansas City people , had
always been able to properly receive the
singers and manmro a saengcr-fcst on no
onirer notice than Kansns City enjoyed ,
However , there was no alternative but to
submit to the IrroguliiritY occasioned by
thu Kansas City action. Nebraska
singers , however , wcro especially dis
pleased , nnd for the purpose of obviating
mother hitch of the kind , have estab
lished what is known as the Nebraska
sacngcrbund. The new organization
will hold annual fcsts , and the lirst of
those will bo hold in Plattsuiouth ,
commencing on the fourth of next month
and closing on the sixth. The commit-
tco of that place is now making elaborate
preparations for the undertaking , and
the following societies will bo in ntton-
dance : Mcmisrchor , Omaha ; Teutonic
singing society , of Scward ; Columbus
Moinherchof , Lincoln Gcrmania Mn-u-
